Community Health & Medical Care, 01/11/2014  to  28/11/2014

What an amazing experience these four weeks. Helping the community and staying at a host family to get to know the true culture of Nepal. A perfect combination.

I really liked to assist doctor Laxmi at the health clinic in Tinpiple. Of course that is where my interest are as a medical student, but I also learned a lot. It is good to realize that the situation here is totally different from the situation in Europe, but with the limited options they can do so much for the community.


One thing I will always remember is the Okhaldunga Health camp. I am glad that I could come and see the way of life in the rural area of Nepal. It is completely different from the Kathmandu valley. Life is really basic and there are not a lot of medical facilities. The work we all have done was needed and I am happy that I could be a part of the public health and medical team.
